on the hall of fame class. none were elected. i have covered steroids in sports for over ten years are, it would have been unimaginable to have in-season blood testing. players said they would never allow it. they didn't know how taking blood might affect their performance on the field. >> what? >> they said if you take blood just before a game, the clubhouse or locker room, they were concerned it might affect the way they play the game. >> how much blood? >> you may think that's ridiculous. >> i do think it's ridiculous. having given a lot of blood over the years, how is that possible? >> to allow the tests, a major concession, major progress in testing in sports. >> because it makes so nens. how much blood to you have to give? >> they are relatively news, and a lot of progress. >> you are not giving a liter of blood. >> look, i agree. but these players have held a firm line for years and years and years. and it's a big step. >> what are you going to do? have another class where no one is elected into the hall of fame. >>> up next on "starting point," how did the meetings go between v
? >> petty -- i think you have a couple things. obama is one of 17 american presidents to re-elected to a second term. if the reality what has happened so far. that reelection hasn't given him a lot of influence or power. whether the debt ceiling, gun control, fiscal cliff, his first nominee for secretary of state susan rice, republicans are here to remind him that they are significant opposition, number one. number two, their own foreign policy, they are trying to figure out a way in the wake of bush 43 to identify a foreign policy muscular foreign policy that is different than the democrats. i think a lot of this is feeding the controversy. >> gregg: fair enough. you also debunk the argument that hagel is not qualified. in doing so in part you are siding with some derision. another pentagon chief who was well qualified, does judgment trump experience? >> it's a fascinating point. don rumsfeld is one of the most brilliant people that i've ever met. there is no question about it. if you look at the first george w. bush administration and you look at the policies on iraq, you had a gr
against him, up for re-election and in a towering position and said in an interview if he decided to run for president this time he'd be a lot more ready to run than in 2012 if he took a pass. in a lot more formidable place in terms of the party. >> that's what i was going to say in terms of being a potential real candidate. i would assume there are high level republicans talking to him, courting him, trying to make it happen. they certainly did last time around. these numbers help in a big way, chuck. >> he's taken it one step at a time, getting the governorship, getting re-elected matters a lot to him. he's obviously on track to do that. he's the favorite of a lot of republican money, especially in this city in the tri-state region. he will go into an intensely competitive primary which is important. what the party looks like two years from now is still pretty much up for grabs. there are a lot of different factions within the party. his appeal could be crossover. there's a lot of people in the tea party factions who were attracted to him in 2012. whether he will continue to be that ca

a challenging election cycle for democrats who will be defending a see not only in conservative west virginia, but in republican leaning states like arkansas, alaska, louisiana, and montana. this item was covered by "the wall street journal." regarding climate change, we are going to have a discussion of in 5-10 minutes talking with david doniger and myron ebell. that is coming up later in this edition of "to the washington journal." back to our conversation, karen is in louisiana on the line for independents and also served in the air force. what did you do enter the air force? caller: 1 was in a partnership education program to teach the afghanis how to maintain their facilities once we evacuate the area. i did that in a few locations. i also serve to do oversight construction projects. pretty big roles. i had a chance to do some face to face with the afghans. as a woman a military member, i did see a change in culture from previous deployments. i see if we are going to change the mind set completely, it will require a number of years. it will require generations of us being over there. and
generations. -- no longer exist for future generations. >> the republican response, the newly elected member of the 113 congress. some of you are already weighing in on our face of page -- facebook page. -- from our twitter page, there is this from jim -- it is not the second amendment, it is the 14th amendment. democrats urging obama to bypass the republicans on the debt. one option for congressional democrats would involve the president invoking the 14th amendment of the constitution to declare congressional action unnecessary for raising the limit. let's read you just a portion of what the amendment states.
